Resource Recycling Conference 2014: The intersection of purchasing and recycling

By Editorial Staff, Resource Recycling

How can the nation's recycling infrastructure better align itself with the ongoing push among government and businesses to buy and use environmentally friendly products? Resource Recycling Conference 2014 will delve into the issue.

The Northeast Recycling Council has developed a tool to provide purchasers with the information they need to increase their environmentally preferable purchasing (EPP). Based on a national survey, and in collaboration with experts from around the country, NERC has established EPP specs on three ubiquitous yet challenging products: multi-purpose paper, toner cartridges and office supplies.

At the Resource Recycling Conference, a NERC leader will highlight the EPP specs as well as tactics for promotion and purchaser education, leaving attendees better informed about purchasing with recycling in mind.

Resource Recycling Conference 2014 is taking place at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside Sept. 16-17. Head to rrconference.com for more information on attending, sponsoring and exhibiting.
